A new career, a new place, and a new man—you’d think after the rough year she’s had, Isla has finally found her stride. Of course it’s never that simple. Some dreams she is building, some dreams are taken away before they have a chance to form. But she never imagined that the one thing she’s worked so hard to realize, could be the cause it all breaks apart.

descriptionThis is one of the best covers I have seen in awhile. Fabulous representation of the hero. It has great composition. The typography is unique and eye-catching. It makes great use of graphics. My only little niggle with it in the placement of the author's names and the two different fonts used. Other than that it is pretty much perfect.description

I had high expectations after Shutter Speed gave me a glimpse into how amazing Ben and Isla were together. Well those high hopes weren't just filled they were blown sky high in a phenomenal way. Ben was the perfect balance of mysterious alpha who showed his heart by actions. When he decides to grace you with words though you'd better be listening because every syllable counts. Isla was sometimes a contradiction but really in the most human way. Strong yet vulnerable with a side of quirky to give ...more

2nd read: I did a second read via audiobook and I highly recommend it. The narrators did a fantastic job and it's dual narration. This is one of my favorite series by this author and the second read just confirmed how much I love it.

1st read: I love, love reading about an already established couple. I like to see how they handle things together and just being happy with each other.

In Freeze Frame, Ben and Isla are a brand new couple so we still get to see them learn and grow as a couple, and se
3.75 stars. After reading and loving Shutter Speed I was really itching for Freeze Frame. And whilst I liked it, I didn't love it. I want/need more meat to my stories and I really struggled the first quarter, it just didn't hold my interest. Once the suspense bit kicked in things started to move along but still, this was more like "a month in the life of ...." which is great if you like that sort of thing.

The characters were brilliant, Ben's as hot and alpha possessive as they come and Isla (sti

Freya Barker is definitely on my "must read ASAP" list. Her stories have been some of my favorites, and this new series of hers does not disappoint.

Freeze Frame is the continuing story of Ben and Isla after they have decided to stay together, although they haven't figured out all the logistics of their relationship. The story for me, was so realistic in how a couple works together to figure out how to merge the past and present together to build their future - and also introducing family members

Freeze Frame by Freya Barker & KT Dove is a roller-coaster of a crime thriller extending the story of Ben & Isla from the Shutter Speed novella. Just when life seems to settle down for these characters something else arises to put a wrench into their plans of a HEA. I loved Shutter Speed and the chemistry Ben & Isla had, so I went into Freeze Frame super excited to see their story continued and Freya & KT did not disappoint! Freeze Frame start off right after Shutter Speed and as it can be stand ...more

Freeze Frame continues the story of Ben and Isla from Shutter Speed, the novella prior to this book.
In this story, we really get to see how each character develops—individually and as a a couple.
I love Ben. He is the ultimate alpha: strong—physically and mentally, takes what he wants, speaks his mind, protective, owns up to his faults, would move mountains for those he loves, smart, rides a Harley, beyond sexy, respectful, gorgeous, kind, and actually pretty funny. I'm talking ...The.

The continuation of Ben and Isla’s whirlwind love was just as heated and captivating as the novella that began it all. Freya and KT’s partnership only increased the intensity of the couple’s story, and incited new suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat. I’m hoping for more collaborations from these two.

This novel picks up exactly where we left off in Shutter Speed, as Ben and Isla settle into their newfound togetherness. However, their recent happiness is short-lived with a new threat surf

Freeze Frame continues where Shutter Speed left off. It was interesting, even as a short novella, I felt like Shutter Speed gave me a full, good story. But wow did Freeze Frame flesh out these characters so much more.
I love Isla, and her insecurities and her deep love of life. She is taking a big risk in letting Ben into her life and heart and she does it with all she has. Ben is complex, finds words hard and yet, always says what needs said. The two of them together are creating something speci

Isla and Ben are back!!

I was thrilled to sink my eyes right into Freeze Frame as soon as I was done reading Shutter Speed.

I have to say that Isla spoke to me in volumes in this one (mainly because I could relate to her plight having gone through it myself). But the way Ben's support, albeit sometimes faulty (because he is a man) was a phenomenal portrayal of what couples go through.

So much happens to these two, yet they're able to see that sticking together makes them stronger, even if a bit of

I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review. Let me start by saying I fell in love with Isla & Ben in Snap Shot!
These two characters were kinda thrown together in Snap Shot, but there was that instant connection!
trust that because of Ben's past there is Suspense, insecurities on both parts, and learning all truths about each other.
I love the re-entry of character's past, and the addition of new characters.
this is a MUST-READ in my book!

Another awesome book by Freya Barker.
Freeze Frame is the next book in the Snap Shot series.
Loved it. Lots of suspense and a strong Heroine, just like I love to read.
Can't wait for more of this series.

I really, really wanted to LOVE this book. I mean, it continues the story of Ben and Isla, who I loved in Shutter Speed. But…I can’t say I loved it. I liked it a LOT. Just not as much as the prequel. And there isn’t anything I can definitively point to and say why.

I’ve thought about it a lot. And the only thing I can think of is that we’re dropped back into their story after all the angst and turmoil of the initial connection between the two is already over. So, if it’s been a while s

Freeze Frame is the first full length novel in the Snapshot series. However, there is a novella, Shutter Speed, which you need to read before this book. Okay, I really loved Shutter Speed. It is a quick and easy read that is sure to leave you wanting more. Also, through Shutter Speed, we are introduced to Ben and Isla. Freeze Frame picks up right where Shutter Speed left off. Ben h

Oh my goodness. This is one of the best books I've ever read. Ben and Isla belonged together. Isla just knew her life was moving along but moving along nicely. She had a knew place to live and a new man that she loved. Nothing could mess it up....or could it? Ben loves Isla and had a lot of plans for them and their new life but his past comes back to haunt him. Isla is so strong in this book and she fights for what she wants. Ben has some guilt from his past but knows that no matter what he want ...more

Brilliant! Excellent continuation of Ben and Isla! Freeze Frame (Snapshot #1) is an amazing, beautiful, emotional real read. Freya Barker and KT Dove did a fantastic job. When I started Freeze Frame, I wondered what more we needed from Ben and Isla's story. Boy was I wrong. So much emotions. So much excitment. So many surprises.
I have adored Freya's writing since the first. We get to see what happens after the excitment of Shutter Speed. Real stuff that everyone faces. That is what I love most.

This is a Continuation of Ben and Isa story from Shutter Speed.
They are making decisions that normal couples do but we are learning more about Ben's past job history and what went on, I liked seeing that this couple has the trials that most every couple has,
Make sure you read Shutter Speed first though

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters were well developed and had an amazing connection. Having read the novella first, getting to know the characters helped me build up the connection between them and I love them. The story was unique and kept me reading. I hope all the characters return for more in the future.

Let me just say firstly that these are new authors to me, but my word, I will be reading more of their work. Ben & Isla are great together, and I loved how they adapted and grew with their relationship. No spoilers from me though!
This story has suspense, protective alpha, and strong independent woman, which had me hooked and intrigued throughout. Congrats to these 2 authors who have done a great job together!
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book!

I give this book a 4.5 rating. This book was full of love and suspense. I enjoyed the characters and come to love most of them. Some not so much. Ben is a major alpha male and does everything to protect his woman.

Are you ready for a fast paced adventure that will you on the edge of your seat?

I am a fan of Freya's strong independent heroines, Isla fits that bill perfectly. Not just any woman would pack everything up to go help look after a campground on the side of a mountain. But when her Uncle Al needs her help she doesn't think twice. This giving her the perfect backdrop and subjects to further grow her photography and pursue her dreams. Over the crest of 40 she

Favorite Quotes:

I’m taking note of everything she dumps in the basket, including the bag of mini Reese’s Pieces. Mainly because she holds it up before dropping it in, saying; ‘Chocolate is an imperative part of the cure.’ I take that to mean, don’t ever come home without it.

Lying here, feeling your heat, hearing the steady beat of your heart— knowing I’ll get to wake up tomorrow morning to the same thing— it means everything. I want to freeze the moment, frame it, so whenever I get

So this was the continuation of Shutter Speed which was a SNAPshot novella released previously and should be read first to get the backstory on everything Isla and Ben. These two are one of my favorite couples and I was so excited when I finished Shutter Speed to know that she was completing the story and giving me more of these two!
Ben is so protective and carries the guilt of everything going on around him even if it isn't remotely his fault. Isla is independent and strong and neither o

Yes a great addition to the novella Shutter Speed. I was provided an ARC with no expectation of review and I still kept my preorder of this novel as well worth the book fee. Really interesting to see people who have lived lives (ie not YA/NA) and have to adapt to living and being with another grown being and the baggage they bring to a relationship. The authors do not shy away from their characters making mistakes and reacting however they do not just put drama in for the sake of it. Non perfect ...more

It pains me to admit that I didn't even come close to loving this book. I am a HUGE fan of Freya Barker. The novella is great but I feel this story is missing the build up of a love story. Having this story continue from the novella did it a disservice. I like Isla and Ben but I was bored with reading about them creating a life together. I felt most of the love scenes were gratuitous just to keep the reader interested. The drama of Jahnee wasn't enough of a hook for me either. I was also hoping ...more

OK, confession time: when I finished Shutter Speed, I liked it but I didn't love it as much as some of Ms. Barker's other books. The heroine Isla was a particular challenge for me, so when it came time for me to crack open Freeze Frame, I did it with no small amount of trepidation especially since a new author was being added to the mix and my last few reads in general had been a bit of a mixed bag. I am happy to say those fears melted away from the very first chapter! The story flowed

Isla is finally in a good space with a new place, and a new man after a nightmare year. So she fills like she's hitting her stride, but life is never that easy. Ben doesn't miss his past life, but the unsavory associations seem to miss him. As he's starting to believe in redemption for his past, it comes back to bite him again. But this time, it's also on the woman that brought him out of the darkness. I know this seems a bit generic, but there's no other way to give a description without giving ...more
